WEConnect International in China 2014 Marketplace
November 13, 2014 | Beijing, China
The 2014 Marketplace enables women-owned businesses to showcase their goods and services to top multinational companies. Through corporate-led workshops and matchmaker meetings, women entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet buyers from across China as well as learn the ins and outs of corporate procurement. The day will feature a Luncheon honoring top women entrepreneurs and multinational companies. A networking cocktail will conclude the day’s program, allowing women and corporate buyers the chance to solidify connections and network with one another.
Last Year’s 2013 Marketplace Experience
The WEConnect China 2013 Marketplace was attended by over 200 women entrepreneurs and multinational companies. Powered by Walmart China, this event hosted 8 one-hour long workshops, 27 booths, and 53 matchmaker meetings. As a result, over in 30k USD was generated in a single day, and we were able to directly empower women via greater opportunities and increased market access.
This Year’s 2014 Marketplace Experience
Looking to 2014, we will work to further raise the profile of the Marketplace via expanded media channels and building on the momentum of the 2014 Training & Advisory Council Launch. This will lead to a greater number of booths, additional matchmaking meetings and more targeted workshops. We will introduce expanded WEConnect Training Modules as well as workshops that reflect the growing needs of our WBEs. We will also ensure that all WBEs and booth holders are able to have sufficient time with corporate members, building greater value for certification, and for our corporate members.
